Why Women Need to Climb Mountains Documentary Premiere
Wed 9 November 2016, 18:00 – 21:00 AEDT
The evening and documentary will be introduced by Karen Downes, it has been produced and directed by Renata Keller and tells the story of Gerda Lerner’s contribution to women’s history and freedom and her profound message and example that needs to be passed on. Women need to progress and continue to work on self-authoring their lives. Gerda Lerner’s heroic attitude to overcoming obstacles symbolizes the strength and power that lies within each woman. There is more to understand about the significance of her work and it is important that the next generations learn not only from her theoretical analysis of women’s history but also from her full-hearted and unrelenting spirit in making social change happen, by also rewriting history where women have been left out of the narrative. The film will challenge the audience to think about our collective future and will give a powerful message about the evolution of human dignity. We will complete the evening with a Q & A session.
